3403PANORAMA: two poems
- Mar 31, 2004This morning two poems 'came' to me and in the spirit of
sharing inspiration, I'd like to offer them here. One is funny and
one is serious. If Panorama is still accepting poems, I'd be
happy to put them there, now or later edition. Thanks. Devaki
(Note- Montreal has 6 months of long, hard, cold winter with lots
and lots of snow.)
Spring has finally sprung
and in the freezing north
there's much to be sung
for winters here are not any fun!
Thank God for the sun,
not only in the sky, but in my heart and eye.
As the sun melts the snow
and the seeds start to grow
my inner light flows.
As the sun warms the earth, I feel MY re-birth.
As the birds start to sing
my inner bell rings
"Wake up you sleepy-head.
What are you -dead?"
As the flowers stretch and yawn
and a little green shows on the lawn
I think there's hope for me yet
Ah spring-a new dawn!
40 YEARS AGO
40 years ago this spring
Occurred a most amazing thing
A young man from a far-off place
Came to America, a new life to face
With God in his heart,
He felt he had to do his part
To help the world to 'see'
To set some inner spirits free
To guide those in need
And hungry seekers feed
With only faith to guide him
His inner Light inside him
He began to spread his Light
He taught what was right
And how to fight with all one's might
Aginst the forces of ignorance-night
Now it's been 40 years
And many smiles and tears
He's inspired Truth, Peace and Light
And not to give up the fight
To make the world a better place
To always show one's very best face
To never give up the inner race
To know and feel God's living Grace
We thank him for coming, for sharing his Vision
We thank the Supreme
For that special 'decision'
To send him to us who needed him so
We thank him for coming
40 years ago!
Love and gratitude to Guru and to all his World-wide children
who are keeping his Vision and inspiration flowing. Devaki
